Abstract (from CDS):

We present a [60-100] versus [100-170]µm two-colour diagram for a sample of 61 young stellar objects (YSOs) observed with the Long Wavelength Spectrometer (LWS) on-board the Infrared Space Observatory (ISO). The sample consists of 17 Class 0 sources, 15 Class I, nine Bright Class I (Lbol >104 L) and 20 Class II (14 Herbig Ae/Be stars and six T Tauri stars). We find that each class occupies a well-defined region in our diagram with colour temperatures increasing from Class 0 to Class II. Therefore the [60-100] versus [100-170] two-colour diagram is a powerful and simple tool to derive from future (e.g. with the Herschel Space Observatory) photometric surveys the evolutionary status of YSOs. The advantage over other tools already developed is that photometry at other wavelengths is not required: three flux measurements are enough to derive the evolutionary status of a source. As an example we use the colours of the YSO IRAS 18148-0440 to classify it as Class I. The main limitation of this work is the low spatial resolution of the LWS which, for some objects, causes a high uncertainty in the measured fluxes due to background emission or to source confusion inside the LWS beam.
